'Guardians Of The Galaxy 3' director James Gunn says a character will die in the film sparking fan theories

Well, this could be random aliens in the background, instead of the fate of an actual Guardian, but it still raises questions of concern especially after we had to bid goodbye to Yondu in 'Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2'

We lost a beloved Guardian during the events of 'Avengers: Infinity War'. Thanos (Josh Brolin) sacrificed Gamora (Zoe Saldana) in Vormir for the soul stone. Though we saw Gamora again in 'Avengers: Infinity War', she was from another timeline.

But there's always hope that she will be back in 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3' because she's intrinsic to the inter-galactic gang. However, another death has been eerily promised in the third film.

During an online Q&A on his Instagram stories, filmmaker James Gunn was asked whether someone will die in GOTG 3. "Yes," he answered. 

Well, this could be random aliens in the background, instead of the fate of an actual Guardian, but it still raises questions of concern especially after we had to bid goodbye to Yondu in 'Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2'. 

We saw the remaining Guardians return in 'Avengers: Endgame' for the final showdown against Thanos. The effects of his snap had been reversed and the universe had been avenged.

Unfortunately, we had to lose Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) in the process who sacrificed himself. And, we don't have Captain America (Chris Evans) anymore, as he has lived out his full life with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), and has passed on his shield to the Falcon (Anthony Mackie). 

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Marvel and Disney studios have had to reshuffle their film schedules. 'Black Widow' moved from May 1 to November 5, 'The Eternals' was pushed from November to February, 'Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings' moved from next February to next May and so on.

As the current situation stands, 'Guardians Of The Galaxy 3' will most likely release in 2023. Gunn has emphatically said that he would not start pre-production work on 'Guardians 3' until his work on 'The Suicide Squad' is complete, which will hit theatres on August 6, 2021. 

Recently, it was announced that San Diego Comic-Con has been officially canceled due to the pandemic. Fans usually eagerly wait for Comic-Con as it is the place where studios discuss their latest projects and products.

Gunn tweeted yesterday, "It's the right thing to do, but I'm still sad to hear about #SDCC being canceled this year. I'll miss all of you. We as creators, studios, and publishers will have to find ways to make it up to you the fans in other ways."

To cheer up fans, the official Unofficial SDCC Blog tweeted, "If you're feeling sad/disappointed about not being able to see a favorite vendor/artist at #SDCC this year... go buy something from them online TODAY. That is how you help ensure they make it to #SDCC 2021 at all."

"We will get off our soap box soon (or maybe we won't!), but seriously guys, SO. MANY. VENDORS. and artists rely on #SDCC to help them get through the year. Many are REALLY worried right now. Go buy some cool stuff! Commission art! Treat yourself on this bad news day!" the tweet added. 

The official Twitter account for AMC's 'The Walking Dead' also tweeted, "We LOVE #SDCC, but we're happy local & state governments are taking the necessary steps to keep people safe! See y'all there next year."
